There are a lot of ways to redirect site visitors from one domain/website to another. The so-called URL redirection is frequently favored. In contrast to parking a domain address, a URL redirection is possible only if the domain name in question is hosted. What this means in simple terms is that you may still open any content if you have a direct link to it and you could create e mail addresses or subdomains and use them. This kind of feature has several practical uses - if you choose to switch your domain address, you could forward the site visitors, but the e-mails with the old one shall still be active in case you are communicating with clients or partners. When you have two very similar Internet sites and you intend to rebuild one of them, you could forward the traffic to the other Internet site so as to avoid losing potential customers, while you shall still be able to access the admin area for the first Internet site and work on it.
